The New York Daily News revealed on Sunday that Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli will launch a new ongoing Marvel series starring Miles Morales in the wake of Secret Wars — with the twist that this will be the first series starring Miles to be set in the main Marvel Universe rather than the Ultimate Universe. (Two major universes entered Secret Wars; one will leave.)
While previous Miles Morales titles bore the names Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man and Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man, this book will unsurprisingly forego the now defunct 'Ultimate' branding. More surprisingly, it won't pick up a new adjective in its place. The new Miles Morales title is simply called Spider-Man.
While promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mark Ruffalo expressed interest in making a new solo Hulk movie, and he also suggested a possible reason why it hasn’t happened yet: Universal still has the rights to distribute future Hulk films, which is something Marvel would need to figure out to move forward. A new report suggests that the rights issue may not entirely be an obstacle after all — the only thing keeping Marvel from making a Hulk movie is Marvel itself.
First, a quick history: last year, Hugh Jackman himself said he would be in both X-Men: Apocalypse and The Wolverine 3. Then the actor said he would love to play Wolverine until he dies, if Fox would let him (pretty sure they would). And then he said The Wolverine 3 would be his final appearance as the clawed mutant hero, and he began acting coy about additional appearances in interviews. So, is he in X-Men: Apocalypse or not? We might have a legitimate answer now.
Just a few days ago, it was reported that 20th Century Fox wants Kenneth Branagh to direct their upcoming remake of Murder on the Orient Express, but it seems like another major studio is also interested in acquiring his services: Marvel reportedly wants the Thor director to return for Thor: Ragnarok. Decisions, decisions.
It’s become a trend for studios to release new teasers and trailers skewed towards celebrating various holidays (last year’s Christmas “card” from The Babadook was particularly inspired). And while some of these promos aren’t so great, this new Ant-Man trailer from Marvel is a pretty nice Father’s Day gift.
Although it’s been rumored that Channing Tatum’s Gambit and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine might appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, we now have confirmation that one of them will definitely not be showing up after all. According to Channing Tatum, you shouldn’t get your hopes up about a Gambit cameo in Bryan Singer’s upcoming sequel.
Marvel Studios may have opted out of Comic-Con 2015 for any number of reasons, though the dependable folks at Marvel TV will make sure our stay in San Diego isn’t without an Agents check-in. Not only will the Agents of SHIELD be out in full force for a Season 3 panel, they’ll be joined by spiritual predecessor Agent Carter.
Writer. Editor. Artist. Comedian. Mark Gruenwald was a man of many talents, who wore many hats over the course of his life. Born in Wisconsin on this day in 1953, he grew up loving comics, contributed to various fanzines and comic-themed publications, and in 1977, published the first issue of his own Omniverse, a comprehensive dissection of alternate-universe continuities. The next year, he began working for Marvel as a writer and assistant editor, and quickly proved himself to be an essential asset to the company, both as an employee, and as an all-around morale booster – his high spirits and penchant for practical jokes are the stuff of industry legend.
When discussing the greatest comic artists of all time --- or at least those who worked in mainstream American comics --- there are a few names that tend to be listed right at the top: Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Alex Toth, Will Eisner… and the man who was born on this day in 1927, Wallace Allan Wood.
